Editorial Reviews


"We have needed this book for a long time! Austin and Comeau have provided a much-needed rallying cry for those of us who work to support and care for clergy. Even more importantly, they offer an excellent road map that can help us achieve the kind of unified effort this book advocates for. I am eager to join their effort."

--Matt Bloom, University of Notre Dame

"Founded upon the sound use of previous research into the topic of clergy self-care, this book goes on to offer not only recently obtained information, but more importantly, an examination of novel avenues for further investigation. Austin and Comeau add new and exciting areas for discussion and investigation that hold possibilities for the real and lasting improvement in the lives of the diverse body of Christian clergy."

--Melinda Contreras-Byrd, licensed psychologist, AME Church pastor

"Seismic changes are reshaping congregational life in America, leaving clergy anxious and vulnerable. In this timely and well-researched book, Austin and Comeau assess the quality of care offered by clergy service providers. Their findings are illuminating and sobering. This book is a wake-up call for the church to make clergy care a priority; for the sake of congregational life as well as the integrity of the Christian faith."

--William Enright, founding director emeritus, Lake Institute on Faith & Giving

Caring for Clergy is essential reading for all those who seek to contribute to creating the

conditions for thriving pastoral ministry. This comprehensive look at programing from across the country sheds light on what is effective, what should be avoided, and how best to support the people that support an entire worshiping community. Austin and Comeau have gifted judicatories, divinity schools, and foundations with a wonderful resource for clergy formation."

--Robb Webb, director of Rural Church, The Duke Endowment

5.0 out of 5 stars An invitation to collaborative care
By Sarah E on September 16, 2022
Five stars for its sheer scope and vision. Add clear and concise writing, charts and careful notes, this is an invitation for clergy care providers to step up and collaborate more holistically. Austin and Comeau are challenging us to think faithfully how to be good stewards of expertise and resources - human, material and financial - in the realm of caring for clergy.
